Are we humans, due to our snakeskin consumption, responsible for the descent of snakes?
About 600,000 giant snakes are processed into fashion items every year. The number of unreported cases is much higher. Pythons have become rare in some regions. Increasingly, illegal wild catches of snakes are a major problem.
Germany plays a major role in the snakeskin business. But biologist Dr. Mark Auliya from the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research has developed the “Python Code”. This code works like a barcode for snakes. With this code, snakes now have a genetic fingerprint.
What else can be done with this new Python Code and does it help against the extinction of snakes?
